In an ever evolving world, there are many stressors. There are also many prescriptions as to how to cope with them. In a world full of "modern" medicine and technology, there is still a lack of understanding for the human soul. Yet, I am grateful for the Creator who knows and calms my soul.
Today I found myself fighting off random bouts of depression. They were out of no where, they would fall upon me and make feel down in increments. There was no reason for them to occur. I had a productive time of prayer at the ministry where I work and I had found what I was looking for at a local hardware store. Yet, as I walked through the aisles of the store, I found myself not being able to shake these bouts off.
I turned to God, right where I was, and began to pray in my mind. I began to ask him for help. For He has given me a sound mind. He has given me peace in my heart. He has given me all that I need to be sane in all aspects of my well-being. As I prayed, I began to see, that these bouts were nothing more than an oppression. It was an oppression for which there could be multiple reasons for its existence; it was wearing me down. I continued to pray and ask God to help me, deliver me, and to remove this oppression. And out of nowhere, without my noticing, it was gone. I no longer felt its pressure upon me. God had addressed it and sent it back to where it came from.
Many people in this world would be quick to label and diagnose me. They would say I had "an episode" and perhaps hold a "bipolar disease". Others may say, I am just stressed out and it is beginning to take a tow on my mind. Yet, I can eliminate such foolish suggestions because I hold a graduate degree in the field of psychology; and know many of its limitations. But glory be to God Almighty, that I am His child!
There is nothing in this world or the next that can press upon me and leave me there. He is my Redeemer and Everlasting Strength. In Him do I put my trust. I do not need any "psychobable" to address my spiritual oppression (of which psychology does not recognize nor have any idea where to start to treat it), yet I have direct access to my Creator, Healer, and Savior and He will
Blessed Be The Lord God Almighty!
